Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ilford

My wife and I are nearing an exchange on a house in Ilford and my mum and dad have sent the exchange deposit to my solicitor. I am now advised that as the deposit has been received from someone other than me my conveyancing practitioner needs to make a notification to my lender. Apparently, in also acting for the lender he must advise them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I disclosed to the lender regarding my parents' contribution when I applied for the home loan, so is it really necessary for this now to delay the deal?

Your lawyer is obliged to check with lender to make sure that they understand that the balance of the purchase price is not from your own resources. Your solicitor can only notify this to your bank if you agree, failing which, your lawyer must cease to continue acting.

At what point will exchange of contracts occur in residential conveyancing in Ilford and am I required to attend the lawyers office?

Where you are local to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Ilford you are welcome to come in to sign documents. That being said, the lender approved solicitors we recommend provide a countrywide conveyancing service and give as equally diligent and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The executing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is just a prerequisite for the conveyancer to exchange contracts at the suitable time, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a long "chain" is involved, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ilford)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

we are a couple who wish to acquire a 1 bedroom flat in Ilford with a mortgage from Bank of Ireland.We have a Ilford conveyancing practitioner but Bank of Ireland says he's not on their "panel". we are left little option but to use a Bank of Ireland panel lawyer or keep our preferred solicitor and pay for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; is there anything we can do?

No, not really. The loan issued to you contains terms and conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will be on the Bank of Ireland solicitor panel. Until recently, most mortgage companies had large numbers of law firms on their panels: a borrower could find one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for Bank of Ireland
